The Last Song [REVISED]

In a black cobweb top Alice can’t move freely
through the house - she’s catching herself on
projecting surfaces, corners, things that open
and close; slinking slowly along passages she
thinks of the last song to be sung before mom,
Queen of Hearts, and Duchess leave the land

To move to the Cape; her sis the Duchess said
she found a house, bags are packed, they sent

[Hata Bildir]
